|Have you ever been driving down the street and
seen a 20 foot geyser from a broken sprinkler head, and wondered how
much water and money was being wasted, not to mention the potential
water damage to structures from flooding?
The GeiserMiser is the simple and low-cost
solution to broken sprinkler heads or disconnected flexible
The GeiserMiser instantly detects broken
sprinkler heads, and stops water flow. The simple device is
typically installed at the end of each sprinkler supply line before
the flexible pipe and sprinkler head.
It's patented operation is very simple.
There's a ball inside tied to a spring. When water flow
surges as in the case of a ruptured sprinkler head, the ball is
pushed to the end and it blocks flow like a valve. The spring
is critical because it supplies enough tension to keep the valve
open during normal flow conditions. The other benefit is that
it can be oriented at any angle.
The amount of water wasted from a single
broken sprinkler is mind boggling: A 1/2" pipe at 60psi
will lose 13 gallons per minute which is 7800 gallons of water per
hour! This product is great because it pays for itself.
Think of it as flood insurance.
